Daily Dose of the Dub: Foote returns and exits after the first, Americans recall Sloan and more

Foote returns, exits due to soreness

Nolan Foote returned to the Kelowna Rockets lineup on Monday a day after being traded in the NHL to the New Jersey Devils. In his first action since playing two periods on January 10th, Foote only got through the first period before leaving the game with soreness.

In a statement, Rockets Owner & General Manager Bruce Hamilton had this to say

“He was told to step out if he was sore and he did. After the trade occurred yesterday, the agent for Nolan contacted New Jersey about where Foote was at and if he was cleared to play. Permission was given by New Jersey’s general manager today, because of the trade occurring last night, we didn’t know where we were at. We’ll find out more from New Jersey this week.”

Americans recall Sloan
